GungHo’s Princess Punt Sweets passes 8M downloads in Japan, still no English version



Japanese gaming powerhouse GungHo Online Entertainment, the maker of the hit mobile game Puzzle & Dragons, announced this week that Princess Punt Sweets – its second most popular smartphone game – has has surpassed eight million downloads in Japan.

The only other region where this title is available is in Korea, having launched back in July of 2013 (iOS and Android). I’m surprised that GungHo has not expanded this game to English regions [1], because I think it really has the kind of cute appeal that has helped so many other Japanese apps succeed in overseas markets in the past year or two.

It might be an easier sell to overseas markets than Puzzle & Dragons, I think.

If you’d like to try out the Japanese version, you can get it as a free download for iOS and Android.
